Storm Caroline is expected to barrel into the United Kingdom overnight after strengthening in the Atlantic Ocean throughout Wednesday.

Given its name by the UK Met Office, Storm Caroline is an Atlantic storm that is expected to pass close to the north coast of Scotland on Thursday morning, with strong and blustery winds also expected over Ireland later in the week. "These will continue into Thursday night and Friday with some producing accumulations on hills and mountains".

The company, meanwhile, is continuing to plan to fly all its scheduled services and will have standby aircraft and crews at the ready should weather permit disrupted services to fly. "There is a good chance that power cuts may also occur".

"Road, rail, air and ferry services may be affected, with longer journey times and cancellations possible".

The Met Office said "predominantly colder periods" are expected through the second half of December until after Christmas, with snow in the Midlands and North.

Freezing temperatures are then forecast for parts of Britain on Friday, with a yellow snow and ice warning in place for Scotland, Northern Ireland, western England and Wales.
